Girls Speakup About Climate Change
School Climate Strike, Dec. 2019, Chico, CA, USA

I find hope in girls and young women's activism to protect our environment. Please nominate leaders to be in my book.

Letter to Girls and Young Women Activists for a book about them:

 

I’d like to Skype interview you for a book-in-progress about girl and young women climate activists, with  follow-up interviews over time. We would both edit the transcript to morph it into a book chapter.

 

Interviews with other youth activists are on my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/TheGlobalyouth?pbjreload=10

 

I’m the author of these pertinent books:

Brave: The Global Girls’ Revolution (Equality Press) Vol. 1 Global Issues, Vol. 2 Regional Activism

Your Mindful Guide to Academic Success: Prevent Burnout (Equality Press)

Ageism in Youth Studies: Generation Maligned (Cambridge Scholars Publishing)

Global Youth Values Transforming Our Future (Equality Press)

Resist: Goals and Tactics for Changemaking (Equality Press)

Answers to Kids’ Deep Questions in Photos (Equality Press)

The Teen Trip: The Complete Resource Guide (Equality Press)

 Ed. Everything You Need to Know to Succeed After College (Equality

 Press)

 How to Survive Your Parents' Divorce (Equality Press)

 

My background is I developed/chaired the Women’s Studies Program at California State University Chico. I also do intuitive energy work, dance, garden, travel.

 

Please let me know when are good times for you to Skype with me. I’m in California.

 

These are beginning questions:

*Where and when were you born? Birth order?

*3 words to describe you

*what values did you learn from your family? That is, what is important to your parents?

*how did you learn about the climate change disaster?

*when and why did you decide to take a leadership role? Previous experience?

*how do you cope with backlash, unfair criticism, harassment from deniers?

*what do you personally do to help the environment?

*what does feminism mean to you?

*why do you think most of the recent young climate change leaders are female?

*what tactics do you find most useful in being a changemaker? My book “Resist: Goals and Tactics for Changemakers” found burnout and purity issues are problematic.

*what works in organizing a group to take action and stick to it without splintering on dogma/purity or losing interest?

*what national groups do you work with?

*are you an optimistic or pessimist about stopping global warming, etc.?

*what do you see yourself doing five years from now?

*anything else you’d like to add?

*what other girls should be in the book?

 

 

Many thanks, Gayle Kimball, Ph.D. [email protected]

Hello, Kimberly,

What a great initiative this is! Do you have an age range? I’ll check if I can share this to some friends in my country.

Thank you!

Good question. Let's focus on Generation Z-- born between 1997 and 2012. That means the group spans ages 7 to 22 in 2019. Thanks, Gayle
